A few guys have the system set up on a bow already. Reviews have been good. I ordered a full kit for my new bow + one of the new sierra6 scopes to put on a long range rifle hunting rig. Looks like a great setup.

I got the BDX 2.5-8x scope with the KILO 1600 Rangefinder package. That, coupled that with a new ADRecon quick detach mount should work well. Have it all mounted now on my Nemesis & the app on my phone so taking the total rig to Scheel’s today where I purchased it and we’ll get it all set up. Should be a great out west rig.

Just to clarify I haven't ordered the sierra6 yet, I don't think they're available yet. It's just going to be a future purchase

It works as described. I've used it for 4 months and taken two deer with it. I have the Sierra3 series 3.5-10X42 scope and the Kilo 2200. Works like a champ. Great buys can be found on sales and eBay combo deals.

Sig has updated the BDX line with the Sierra6 versions. They are about to be released and their crossbow specific (crossbow, balckpowder, air) scope in that line is a 2.5-8X40.

Yea, Rich don't temp me. LOL...... Not fair! :D:cool:

How far have you tested the blue tooth range finder to the scope reticles on your Xbow? That is pretty darn cool setup. On the fly range finding and the high lighted reticle dot in the scope instantly is lit up is impressive. I take it that is how it works? Also, I read the optics are very impressive.

How heavy is the scope?

You need one if you plan on chasing speed goats Tom.
Robert, wish I could use a scope for pronghorn. No magnified optics allowed in Colorado for Xbows. However, I like the concept so much I can use it so many other states I plan to hunt. Wyoming and Arizona are on my hit list. Not ruling out Kansas as well and of course Alabama.

I want to be sure how tight the groups are before I commit to buying one...Right now I have my Nitro X set up with a HHA Optimizer Speed Dial shooting Spynal Tapps and one inch groups out to 30 to 35 yds...(for head shooting turkeys) This would be great if the BDX would group like that.. With out turning the dial on the optimizer...Plus my eyes are not like they used to be either seeing that small yardage tape..

TX-RDXguy has this setup on his TenPoint and is quite impressed.

This combo is gaining my interest to be on my hit list for 2020.

Range in yardage and the data transfers to the accurate holder dot in the scope? Oh, snap.

It holds tight rifle groups to 500 yards plus and from my xbow testing and use hunting, it's as accurate as the trigger puller is. 30-40 yard 1" groups should be no problem. You'll also find the Sig glass is very good.

I have been a lurker here and am chiming in because I think this will be my chosen solution for 2020, I need a new rangefinder and the SIG rangefinders are amongst the best and most accurate. I have only heard one complaint (second hand) about the BDX system and that was on a rifle set up and the guy was missing everything he used the rangefinder on.

Since the rangefinder is fallible I think using the one zero systems of sighting your bow in for the best trajectory will help in close to 40 yards and use the rangefinder for longer shots. The benefit of the BDX system is you can choose your zero and let the electronics do the work at a long-range. I am a newbie here and am prepared for flaming but I do take 50-60 yard shots on deer in Michigan, I hunt a disease area where only archery is permitted and I let em fly all day long at 50 yards and have not had a single miss or wounded deer. The 6 deer I shot this year all died withing 30 yards due to perfect shot placement and I attribute that to a perfect zero of 31.5 yards.

The reason I am posting on the BDX thread is I think its the perfect crossbow set up, great glass, great electronics and if a person practices its almost fail-proof.
